Americans Have Been Cursing at Automated Checkouts Since 1937

Who enjoys struggling with microscopic barcodes and unmarked bits of produce in the self-checkout lane? Nobody? Too bad; self-automated modules are here to stay.

"That's when Mickey Drexler first went to the Gap from a department store" and when "Les Wexner, of Limited fame and Victoria's Secret, invented the modern specialty store," he recalls.
